California got a little bit brighter today as the highly anticipated DEVAULT JADE EP was unveiled. “MAFIA,” the lead single to the 4-track effort is a stunning introduction to the chromatic catalog. The single speaks to the industrial side of electronic music as machine-like bass rivets through a plane of placidity, setting the tone for its successors. A spine chilling, rhythmically dynamic intro, “MAFIA” is as intense as it is moving. The EP was released in parallel to a striking, 13 minute visual aid, solidifying DEVAULT as a tastemaker as well as an artist to watch. Listen to “MAFIA” and the JADE EP today.
Enticing, fascinating, and handsome to boot, BLVTH returns with a striking framework of thunderous sounds via his latest single, “Rigid.” The German-based babe is relatively new to the professional music scene, yet far from novice. His unique sound is distinguished, sharp, resounding. “Rigid” is a smokestack of polyrhythmic soundscapes. Industrial and chromatic, BLVTH channels the unfamiliar sounds of post apocalyptic techno, later diving into a world of echoing, electro-R&B. Reverberating vocals oscillate moments of controlled chaos, giving rise to a zealous yet chilling energy. Explore this labyrinth of sounds, and watch this space for more from BLVTH.

You’d never guess that NYC-based producer Jared Rapoza, better known as CRVE U, was a recent high school graduate starting college classes this fall. Weighing in at 17 years old, the youthful artist tends to a craft that is far from novice. His latest single is a remix of the animated Robert Delong’s “Favorite Color Is Blue” featuring K.Flay. CRVE U gives the electro-pop single an industrial treatment, brushing it with mechanized shades of chrome. Elements of grit blend like a yin and yang with graceful undertones. While maintaining a deep sense of respect for the original framework, this flip takes “Favorite Color Is Blue” to a new dimension. Tune in.
